....my mom posts this article on Facebook. While we have a mostly good relationship, it isn't exactly one that is close, and really she hasn't given many indications that she's trying to understand what I'm going through. But this shows that maybe she's trying to get it.
It was subtle, just shared without any explanation, but she shared it, and that means something to me. I'm also thankful that she didn't mention or tag me and hubs in it, not because I mind people knowing, but because it's not her role to share (though she's violated this trust before).
Granted, her next post was something about spoiling her grandkids, but whatever. Baby steps.
